Default deck painting recommendations

I can power wash it myself but am looking to farm out applying the paint. Any recommendations for somebody in the south KC area?

Also I have decided to go with paint instead of a stain, mainly because the deck has been added on to and all the wood doesn't match. So I figure paint will give a more uniform color than a stain, but have no idea about products or textures or anything like that. Any suggestions on what to use would be helpful too.

Don't use Behr Deck Over. Its junk. I regret using it on my porch and after watching other youtube video's, i see many more people regret using it as well.

I used Cabot Australian Timber Oil with all my (Spam Link Removed) deck painting and staining. Never been disappointed.

Most of the painters I know are teachers that do it in the summers.

On the painting the deck, I personally avoid painting any wood outdoors. When it starts to crack and peel up, it looks horrible and is a PITA to deal with. Last year, I had to repair my fence, and protect some wood outdoor furniture. I was told by a few people, that ready seal was the way to go. Because I had some different colors/ages of wood, I went with a darker stain.

Overall, it turned out really well. I tried multiple methods and ended up using a sprayer with the most success (similar to a wagner power sprayer type thing). The biggest variation I had in color, was when I was brushing it on, and the bottom of the can had a lot more tint than the top - which is on me for not keeping it stirred.

Anyways, it is something to consider. You could test it on the different woods and see how it turns out.
